At Clayton Village, we believe that all pupils should be able to confidently communicate their knowledge, ideas and emotions through their writing.

The CVPS curriculum for English aims to ensure that all pupils:


  • can write down ideas fluently with accurate spelling and legible, cursive handwriting;
  • have an increasingly wide knowledge of grammar;
  • are able to write clearly and accurately by adapting their language and style in a range of contexts, purposes and audiences.


We use our English curriculum to broaden children’s knowledge, vocabulary and experiences across the curriculum. Children are provided with opportunities and purposes that inspire them to write. They discuss and share ambitious vocabulary so that they have a variety of quality language that they can use to effectively and coherently communicate both orally and written. Following our school aim of ‘Aim High’, we teach our children how to improve their writing by planning, editing and redrafting.
